    Basic Information

    • Violette “Lottie” Angelique Coen is a 28 year old female human.
    • Violette was born to Hrodgar and Donatienne Coen on the 19th day of March, 276 AC, in the town of Val Croix, Merinvague. Violette currently resides in Regalia with her family. Some other familial relations include:
      • Alistair - Age 32 – Brother
      • Rowena - Age TBA - Sister
      • William Coen - 37 - Cousin
      • Dianne Coen - Age 27 - Cousin
      • Aethelred – Age 69 – Uncle (Runcle, ‘reverend uncle’.)
    • Violette’s ambitions are a jumbled mess of rising in both fashion and politics. As she had ran for the position of Arch Chancellor but as she was running she was embroidering broaches and making hats for the occasion. Violette has now began to strive to become a fashion extraordinaire, having every woman of any class to have Violette name stitched into the sleeve. Along with trying to become a lady of utmost social grace, a face to be remembered and cherished.
    • Visual Information
      Body Description
    • Standing at 5'6" and 127 lbs, Violette isn't particularly too tall or petite, however she is somewhat curvy, her curviness help along with a fashionable corset. Most of her fat rests in her hips and chest. Violette suffers some lung problems from years of corsets, causing coughing fits, and shortness of breath.
    • Violette’s skin tone is a porcelain milk-white with a few smooth yet apparent bumps here and there from makeup. Violette contours her face into more of a heart shape, as she is a little embarrassed of having the families long face, also using both long eyeliner and excessive mascara. Her fingernails are often groomed, long, and cut in the fashion of stiletto nails, which is sometimes an uncommon sight.
    • Violette shaves both her legs, her armpits, and her face quite often. She strives for a smooth and sleek look, almost petrified when hairs begin to grow from the last shaving. This stemmed from an incident when she began puberty while she was playing with her childhood friend Lenore. Violette’s stocking fell as they were swinging by their favorite oak tree, causing Lenore to squawk disgust at Lottie’s leg hair.
    Head Description

    • Violette has a long face, which is usually contoured to a heart shape, with large, blue eyes and a straight nose. Violette has plump lips, which are also enlarged with makeup and often covered in a light shade of red. Her eyes are large and appear as if they are a stream of ocean.
    • Her eyes are a dark blue like a healthy blueberry. They're often very wide open, aware and even pronounced.
    • Violette has kept, neat, and sometimes whimsical chocolatey brown hair that falls down a few inches past her shoulder blades, however it is usually up in a poof. Violette keeps a part in the front of her hair, with two ringlets extending on both sides of her face to underneath her chin.

    Clothing and Accessories

    • Violette wears a whole ensemble of clothing as she believes clothes make the woman. She often wears a blouse underneath her long flowing gown, which is usually aligned with a petticoat, bustle, or an elegant cage. Underneath would be embroidered stocking that go up to her waist. The stocking are covered with thin yet reasonably heighted heels to give her a pristine posture. Violette also wears a tight corset with or over her dress. If the corset is over, a short waistcoat or cardigan will be worn. This choice of attire is almost a soft suave, violet colored material, which goes along with her family colors.
    • Violette is often adorned with either a hat she has made, a quaint bonnet with flowers along the middle, or a tight knitted headdress. Violette may even use a single rose that she weaves into her hair. Lottie will also wear assorted jewelry, but often a pearl that snugs onto her neck.

    Combat Styles

    N/A

    • Weapons of Choice
    Nothing, but maybe a parasol for self-defense.

    Relationships

    William Coen(@BillyTheScroofy) - Violette has always looked up to her cousin, mayhaps, more than she should. Lottie see’s William more of a brother than Alistair and is very close with him. Violette is also often very jealous when her cousin is with other women as they have had past occurrences of slight romance. Despite the sit-downs and scolding from her cousin, she sees him as her best friend that is dear to her heart.


    Dianne Coen(@darkarely )- Violette and Dianne have a shaky relationship which is always like the waves crashing on to very sharp rocks. Lottie has deep regret on how she treats her, as she berates, mocks and causes outright hell for her cousin. But deep in her heart she loves her and wants nothing but the best for her.


    Alistair Coen(@Woodwork )- Violette and Alistair have more of an estranged relationship. As they never got along as children, and they never grew one inch from it. However as of late, Violette finds it endearing that her brother is attempting to mend their relationship.


    Maximillian Typhonus(@0romir): Violette never quite got over the courtship between her and Max. Often looking to him as the only man she will ever love. However she is more than happy for him and Pepin, seeing Max as one of her closest friends beyond her family.

    Life Story
    Violette was a child of merriment and whimsy. As a child Lottie was quite the wild card, however this was beaten out of her by her father and was controlled by her mother. During her childhood Violette was very close towards her mother seeing her as a deity wandering the world, she learned many things from her mother, as the violin, embroidery and sewing. Violette also made friends with a girl named Lenore which she grew close into her teen years, until her father put an end to their friendship.

    At the age of eight Violette took a pair of scissors and chopped off half of her hair. Once her father saw this display in the family’s lounge he charged in and yanked her up by the remaining parts of her hair. During this point he was quite drunk and wasn’t thinking straight, he couldn’t help but to begin to beat poor Violette who was just playing around trying to be more like her brother. She thought if maybe she cut her hair, her father would love her like he did Alistair but she got a different reaction then she thought she was going to receive. Instead of the loving embrace was backhand across the cheek and the yanking of hair. Violette’s mother heard the shrieks of the young girl and stormed into the room, trying to pry her drunken father off of her. Donatienne got a few frim smacks across her face as well, before he drunkenly stomped out of the room. Violette’s mother sat her down, and placed her head in her lap, as she gingerly stroked it. She began to tell her that there is nothing wrong with being an elegant, poised lady. And told her not everyone was going to like her, even if that meant her own father. Her mother began to wipe her tears away as she brought her to face-level. “Dearie. My sweet-sweet Lottie. You are going to grow into a beautiful marigold, one that will captivate all inches of the sun.” Violette has gathered marigolds and place them on her bed stand every night.

    Through her teen years Violette began to indulge in makeup and gown which will be carried on to her life now. She held her first dinner party with relatives and made a proper young lady out of herself. Afterwards her mother told her how proud she was of her, and gave her the pearl necklace which had been a family heirloom. Violette promised her mother that she will always try to surprise her to where she would be proud, and her mother chuckled giving her a firm embrace. To Violette’s /own/ surprise, this was one of the last hugs she would receive from her mother.

    As Lottie’s mother grew more ill by the days, so did Violette’s heart. Violette would often pick flowers and sketch in her book to show her mother as she sat by her bedside. Lottie would sometimes sit and play her violin to her mother. Her and her mother’s favorite song was ‘The melody of the meadows’, and Violette played it for her whenever she could. Days came to pass to the few that were left, and on one of these days, Violette sat at her mother’s beside, cradling her cold hand in hers. Donatienne grinned on that day and told Violette, “What a beautiful young lady you have grown to be—just like your mother.” She chuckled, and so did Violette but Lottie had tears welding up in her eyes and her mother drifted off to sleep. She stayed with her for a while laying her head on her mother’s chest, softly weeping. Donatienne passed away three days after, causing Violette to go into mourning, she spent more money on the mourning gown for her mother’s funeral than any other attire she had ever worn. She carried a marigold during the whole ceremony.

    After her mother’s death, Violette left her home as she couldn’t stay there without profusely crying through the day. She went to study fashion in Daenshore, and lived in a luxuriant cottage there for five years. She received a letter from Alistair informing of her father’s death, but she didn’t leave to attend his ceremony.

    Violette came to Regalia to rejoin her brother and her dear cousins whom she loved more than anything. And has resided in the local estate ever since.

    @Springheel Thank you for your patience.

    • Are you sure there are no available goals for the character? Does she want to open a clothing shop? Find true love? Conquer the Qadiriyye? There must be something she wants to work towards.
    • I recommend adding a fourth dislike.

    Save for the listed points, I cannot find any more errors or glaring lore inconsistencies in this application. Tag me when you have completed my edits. Pending!

    Shouldn't their parents have the same names, since they're brother and sister?
